In 1930s New York, banker Bobby Child is desperate to leave behind his inherited career for life on the stage with the Zanglerís Follies. Sent to foreclose a rundown theatre in Nevada, he enters a whirlwind of romance, heartbreak and last chances which draws song and dance back to the forgotten town.
Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for Best Musical, this romantic musical comedy includes much-loved songs from the Gershwin songbook including I Got Rhythm and They Canít Take That Away From Me.
